Developing Ourselves through the Use of Midsemester Evaluation.
Hayward, Pamela A.
Most evaluation of faculty takes place at the end of a semester. Because results of this type of evaluation are not available until after the semester is over, an instructor has no opportunity to make changes to a course while it is ongoing. This paper explains how the practice of midsemester evaluation can provide instructors with a formative evaluation tool that allows for changes while a course is in progress. Both faculty and students benefit from midsemester evaluation. Faculty receive suggestions on how to better gear the course to student learning styles. Students are reminded of their instructor's commitment to the teaching process and are also given a chance to see education as a proactive venture. Instructions on how to administer and process a sample midsemester feedback form are provided. Alternatives to the sample form are also addressed. (Contains 12 references. An early feedback form is attached.) (Author/RS)
